man-running-with-horses-785672Jeremiah 12:5 (KJV) tells us The Lord Answers Jeremiah “If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, in which you trusted, they wearied you, then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan”?

In other words, my friends, if you’re worn out in A 5k footrace with the forces of evil, as you go through the trials of this life each day, what makes you think you can handle a full MARATHON as we begin to enter into the last days of this life’s history.?

It’s time we begin to move at rapid speed  as we prepare ourselves and take the good news of the gospel to others. like Jeremiah, God’s chosen generation “for such a time as this,” has allowed life to wear us down as we become absorbed in self-pity, and doubt in trying to endure to the end.

Jeremiah was ready to abandon it all, and then a word from the Lord tells him, If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have052408_piaa_aab1600 wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? Life is difficult, Jeremiah, are you going to quit at the first wave of trials and opposition?

My friends, Are you going to retreat when you find that there is more to life than having plenty of food each day and a comfortable bed at night to sleep in? God calls all of his Children to pursue righteousness, to sustain a drive toward excellence.

God calls us to have a life of purpose far beyond what you think yourself capable of living, Because He will sustain and provide us with the adequate amount of endurance to fulfill His will in our life. but to  make this MARATHON INTO A SPRINT, it must become all about our faith and our wiliness to serve, as we allow self to die daily.

If thou art not able to encounter lesser dangers, how wilt thou be able to overcome greater one’s in the time of trouble. As a child of God mentally we must be equipped for what lies ahead, Christ tells us himself in Matt. 24 How dreadful those days will be.

My friends we only ask our self these questions when the god of this world places before us his interpretation of God’s word so that our minds will stay focus on the “cares of this life, and that day [will] come upon [us and we will be] unaware. Of what is happening” Luke 21:34 (PSV)

but “Blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord! Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with their whole heart, who also do no wrong, but walk in his ways!……..” Pa. 119:1-176 (ESV)

My friends God’s Word is where we begin to exemplify our faith as we look at the world we live in and come to the conclusion, jesus on the way to calvarythis MARATHON HAS NOW TURNED INTO A SPRINT. Consistent with this, we must now understand, with no doubt, that our “faith is being tested in order to produce endurance so that our endurance will have its perfect result, so that God’s faithful may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2-4 (PSV)

Christ on the Mount of Olives as He was praying, he recognized the difficult road before him. This is the humanity of Jesus, he knows that our Father, has called him to do the unattainable from a human standpoint. So Remember this is humanity that recognizes the difficulty of this journey.

This is humanity that dreads the suffering that He will in counter, humanity knew the path would seem impossible, but it was also humanity and the Son of God who died on the cross so that we can finish this Journey Christ has placed us on to the promise land. So friends today, let’s POSTURE OURSELVES FOR A SPRINT, Christ will be here soon.


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
